I think everybody can have access to the internet. There is no
problem in printing everything out. Internet is just a possibility for
distributing information more easily. But it does not stand at the
end or should not gatekeep information.

Do you think it makes sense to call it "zone 1" if it is so far away. I
know this situation. My parents had such a garden. It works, but I
would not call those zones "zone 1"? Arenīt cities need a
classification of their own (well certainly it is often possible to
have a zone 1 near, but many cities like to see their public parks
occupied by private gardeners who grow their vegetables there.)
